So many surprises this weekend. Buzzy New York rapper A$AP Rocky, fresh off his appearance at Saturday’s Sweetlife festival, landed last night at the 9:30 Club for a sold-out show. Guess who he brought out? D.C.’s Fat Trel, who performed his Lex Luger-produced regional hit “Respect With the Tech.” Turn your eyes to the crowd, which duly flips out once Trel appears. Two questions: When does Trel get to headline 9:30 Club himself? And is it an adequate Trel performance if he’s wearing a shirt?
Ponder those questions from two angles!
